In 2006, Sophie was commissioned to create the "Algerian Love Knot" necklace.
This stunning piece was designed specifically for actress Eva Green to wear as the alluring Vesper Lynd in James Bond film Casino Royale. Unusually for a piece of jewellery, this beautiful love token plays an integral part in the story line in both Casino Royale and, the sequel, Quantum of Solace. Vesper Lynd is seen wearing the necklace throughout the film making it one of the most coveted pieces of jewellery to appear in a Bond movie to date. Bond carries the necklace with him into Quantum of Solace almost as a memento mori and it was in fact the last shot on screen.
Exquisitely detailed granulated scrolls, wire work and engraving decorate the central knot which is hung from multi layered chains, attaching around the neck with a unique version of Sophie’s signature winged heart clasp. Made in oxidised sterling silver with gold plated detail, this mix of ancient and contemporary styling, which has always been a feature in Sophie’s work, fitted perfectly within the design brief.
A symbol of enduring love, this legendary piece has now captured the hearts of a worldwide audience!
